Pride month is over but child drag shows are still here. The United States Air Force hosted an “kid friendly” drag show on Saturday as part of their Summer Festival.
The United States Military continues to embarrass itself with their woke agenda
According to The Post Millennial, The United States Air Force hosted a “kid friendly” drag show at their Joint Base Langley-Eustis on Saturday as part of their “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summer Festival.
The drag show was hosted by Joshua Kelley, who performs under the name “Harpy Daniels – The Navy Drag Queen.” Children were encouraged to attend the festival, as the website advertised “bouncy houses and face painting for the children.”
The Daily Wire reported that Colonel Gregory Beaulieu, commander of the 633d Air Base Wing at JBLE, approved the event with the drag show and authorized the use of military resources to fund the event.
The official JBLE facebook page shared photos from the event, but did not include images from the drag show.
Since the event was reported on, JBLE updated their Facebook post to read, “Comments have been turned off. This is not something we take lightly. We pride ourselves on having an open forum with our teammates, but some of the language and personal attacks in the comment section below violate our comment policy and will not be tolerated.”
A JBLE employee who received an invite to the event told Daily Wire that the drag show was infuriating.
An anonymous source who works at JBLE was invited to attend the event, and told the Daily Wire the drag show was infuriating, “It’s burlesque, it’s hyper-sexualized, it’s not something appropriate for children.” Recently Ron Desantis spoke out against the attendance of children at drag shows after an event was held in Florida,
Last month there was a child drag show in Dallas that was exposed by NextNewsNetwork’s reporters Aldo Buttazzoni and Tayler Hansen. The footage gained nationwide attention and sparked Conservative lawmakers to draft legislation against it.
According to Metro Weekly, Republican lawmakers in Florida and Texas have promised to introduce a bill in the next legislative session that would ban children from drag shows, in response to conservative outrage over a viral video showing children attending a drag show in a Dallas gay bar.
The event, “Drag Your Kids to Pride,” was held at Mr. Misster Dallas, and was promoted as a “family-friendly Pride experience.” Conservative media went into a rage after video from the event was shared widely, showing children getting up on stage or handing money to drag performers.
Opponents of the event criticized scantily-clad drag queens for dancing provocatively, as well as the general atmosphere of the bar, which was playing expletive-filled music during the show and has a neon sign posted on a wall reading: “It’s Not Going to Lick Itself!” Buttazzoni joined Benny Johnson to talk about the event ,
Florida State Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-Eustis), who is running for Congress in Florida’s 7th Congressional District, promised to propose legislation to charge parents with a felony and strip them of their parental rights if they bring their children to drag shows in the state, tweeting: “When will the sexualization of children stop?”
In Texas, State Rep. Bryan Slaton (R-Royse City) promised to introduce a similar bill when the next state legislative session convenes in January.
I never thought I’d see this kind of thing from the U.S military but here we are. The sexualization of our youth is plain to see and it needs to stop now. Conservative lawmakers need to step up and make sure people are unable to pervert our children with these sick shows.
